Jisc continues its efforts to constantly improve the accessibility of its site and services in the belief that it is our collective moral obligation to allow seamless, accessible and unhindered use for those of us with disabilities. Despite our efforts to make all pages and content on Sherpa Services fully accessible, some content may not have yet been fully adapted to the strictest accessibility standards. This may be the result of not having found or identified the most appropriate technological solution.
